. >> greta: did the hearing answer the burning question, why can't the obama administration get its story straight? former u.n. ambassador john bolton is here. so, are you satisfied? >> no, look, the administration made up its mind what the reality was, whether it was engagedin a coverup, whether it was ideology that dominated the view, whether it was incompetence, at this point, we don't know the answer to that. but we know one thing, unmistakeably. they were flatly wrong. they got it wrong before the attack, they got it wrong after the attack. they are getting it wrong now. so we psychoanalyze them all we want, but this is a demonstration, these people cannot be left in the same room with national security. >> greta: you say they are getting wrong, they have got it wrong, but it's more than that. why are they still dog it? why are they still trying to sell us that? jay carney today, in the statements he made today, initial assessment and the immediate aftermath of the attack in benghazi were made, it was a government-wide assessment that the foundation of what ambassador rice said, was

of malarky. >> reporter: ryan said the obama administration allowed iran to get closer to obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> it's because this administration has no credibility on the issue. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> reporter: president obama was criticized for being too passive in last week's debate. vice president biden seemed determined not to make that same mistake. >> but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who said 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan said the obama administration has failed the middle class. >> we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. >> reporter: side by side at the same table, biden and ryan were not shy about directly engaging each other, sometimes with harsh attacks, sometimes with humor. >> i think the vice president very well knows that some times the words don't come out of your mouth the r
to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agreement. we don't have an agreement because they fail to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but, unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unravel other of the obama foreign policy which is making the more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
maneuvering going on in this administration. look, president obama clearly can not run on the economy so he is trying to run on national security issues by claiming we have al qaeda back on its heels. we now know that is not true. so now he is really in a box because i think a lot of people suspect, that all of these lies and the deceit and the cover-up that is now emerging has been essentially political because this is the only thing that he can run on. look, it's always the cover-up and never the original crime that gets these politicians into trouble. when i worked with president nixon in the early 1990s and the whitewater scandal was blowing up i remember president nixon said to me why did i go to the damn fire if nobody will ever learn from watergate and my mistakes. they never learn, alisyn. it is the same pattern over and over again. this has the potential to be fatal to barack obama's re-election effort. alisyn: that's a great quote, monica. thanks so much sharing that with us working with president nixon. >> thank you. bill: the mother of one of the victims murdered in libya now sp
in hempstead, new york. >>> there are new questions today about what the obama administration knew about the terror attack in benghazi compared to what it then told the american people. state department officials grilled by lawmakers on the response to the deadly attack on september 11th that claimed the lives of four americans. ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals there to protect him and a state department staffer. catherine herridge is live in washington. catherine, tell us more what he learned yesterday. >> reporter: thank you, allison and good morning. lawmakers are questioning whether the president's political agenda drove to security situation on the ground that led to the death of four americans. i would note the seals were not there to protect the ambassador. they were there to on a separate mission. as fox reported there was no demonstration at the consulate in benghazi fanned youtube video was not the reason for. that point was made abundantly clear at hearing. >> there were no protest. state department and others have that video. speaking of video, the one in california m
the obama administration has stepped up drone astacks. u.s. officials say the aerial strikes are an effective strategy and have killed hundreds of militants that fueled the insurgency across the border in afghanistan. washington also insists civilian casualties are rare. members of code pink say they held fundraisers in the u.s. to pay their way over here and got close to pakistan's tribal region, about an hour away. this is a place many u.s. government and military officials never dare step in. pakistani authorities said they had to stop them for their own safety. even so, code pink not done making nose against the u.s. drones and planning on more protests this week in pakistan. reza saya, cnn, islam bad. >>> the spacex rocket blasted off from cape canaveral last night launching the first commercial flight to the international space station. the unmanned capsule is on its way after separating from the rocket. dragon is carrying 1,000 pounds of cargo and this is the first of a dozen nasa contracted flights to resupply the space station. talk about launching a big one, new orl
they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges, ryan insinuated that president obama's debate performance last week was motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up lost ground. >> reporter: as for who won, it depends on who you ask. instant polls taken right after the debate are mixed. in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters, 50% thought the vice president won. 31% sided for ryan and 19% called it a tie. 56% thought biden would be an effective president if necessary compared with 4 -9d -- with 49% for ryan. not surprisingly both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risks of electing a romney-ryan ticket. the next presidential debate is tuesday. randall pinkston, cbs news, danville, kentucky.
the same words that the obama administration has been weak and libya and syria have been mishandled. here's congressman ryan fakes off on one of the deans of foreign policy for this administration. >> i think a tremendous disadvantage for congressman ryan, as it will be for governor romney when he faces off against the president on foreign affairs. i think joe biden will make sure they don't stray from the truth. in yesterday's speech somewhat unbelievably to me after all the contention about misstatements, governor romney made two significant misstatements again shows a disregard for the facts. one he said, tamron, there was no discussion of terrorism in the 2008 debates. we saw last night on msnbc they played the tape. >> there's tape to prove he wasn't accurate. >> 40 mentions of terrorism in that debate, and he said president obama hasn't signed a single free-trade agreement, when, in fact, he signed three. joe biden won't let him get away with it. going back to domestic policy for a section, congressman ryan said we don't have enough time to make the math add up. i think what the vic
attack on the obama administration's handling of that. in fact, their overall foreign policy. let's watch. >> this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indiktive of a broader problem. that's what we are watching on our tv screens, the unraveling of the obama foreign policy, which is making them more chaotic and us unsafe. >> here's the comeback. let's listen. >> with all do respect, that's a bunch of malarky. this lecture on embassy security, the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he even knew our ambassador was killed, was out making a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness, i don't understand what my friend's talking about here. this is a president who's gone out and done everything he has said he was going to do. >> well, michael steele and eugene robinson, both msnbc contributors and highly valued in their own ways.
administration. he says people will lose their job if obama is still in the white house. he's kind a character, actually. >> he seems like a little pressure to be saying that to his 7,000 employees. >> he says he won't fire them, but keep in mind that an obama presidency would be bad. >> he talked about the recession affecting his business and how he made it back. it is very detailed. >> christine romans, thank you very much. >>> when we come back, what not to wear at the airport. body armor for one. and that is just the start of what one man had with him when trying to board a flight. we have the full story coming up. e gether, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. tomato soup from campbell's. online outfit piccolo headphones buy now broadway show megapixels place to sleep little roadster war and peace deep sea diving ninja app hipster glasses 5% cash back sign up to get 5% everywhere online through december. only from d
in our nato partners and talk about the positive ways the obama administration handled libya and that biden should point out that paul ryan's most recent budget in the house called for reductions in spending to the state department and he said that could jeopardize u.s. security and that biden should point that out. >> we know that half of the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, national security. the other half on domestic issues. right now they're introducing the wives of the candidates. soledad, tell our viewers what you're seeing. >> that's right. the commissioner has been really running through the program as they head up through the start of the debate. interesting difference between the two wives. very different women, of course. >> very different, primarily because we do see jill biden a lot out there with michelle obama, talking about military families. jan ryan has not done any interviews. believe me, we tried. and she wants to maintain a low profile. she's raising her three kids. she simply has the pedigree to be able to get out there and talk about politic
points. i think he had the vice president on the defensive on the issue of libya and the obama administration actions with regards to libya. i think it was a good debate. >> except you know the clip that we played there about the stimulus? that was a tough one, right? joe? >> well, of course i mean vice president biden is very, very good on his feet, very quick on his feet. i think it was a very strong performance on his part. i think paul ryan did a great job also. but vice president biden is very strong. >> karen, let's talk about all that smiling and interrupting. your unvarnished take. do you wish the vice president had backed off even a little? because then we wouldn't even be talking about his style. >> the only reason we're talking about his style is because the republicans can't seem to take a punch. last week when our guy didn't do so well we took hit. we admitted it and we moved on. this week when it was a commanding performance for romney, all of a sudden joe biden is being rude. frankly, there were so many moments where biden could have further corrected paul on a m
and no rookie when it comes to face-offs with the obama administration. just a few moments ago he tweeted out a picture of himself on the debate stage here in danville, kentucky. i guess he was going through his walk through, you might say, at that point, wolf. and we are told by top aides to paul ryan that he expects to be called mr. ryan later on this evening. in one corner paul ryan in an ice cream shop on the campaign trail, mitt romney's running mate didn't exactly predict a rocky road in his first debate with joe biden. but he did give the vice president the edge. >> joe biden's been on this stage before. he's been on the big stanls. this is my first time. >> reporter: in the other corner a man who's been on this stage before. >> ever seen me rope-a-dope? >> reporter: but biden better have his gloves up. ryan will be looking to debate substance, the wyoming congressman will zero in on this widely received presidential gaffe earlier this month. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign is looking
's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all the debates and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everyone's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early, looking back, i was reading back on your twitter feed last night, and even back in february, you were saying conservatives should support mitt romney. is
repeal obama care and replace obama care with real reforms to bring down the cost of health care and save people money. the president indicated that you're going to see higher taxes under his administration. you already have under obama care. but that will continue. actually the vice president brought out the truth by saying he's going to add about a trillion dollars in taxes and taxes by the way, do not create jobs. raising taxes on people make it harder for enterprises to grow and hire people. i will not raise taxes on small business. i'll not raise taxes on business. i'll not raise taxes on middle-income people, i won't raise taxes at all on the american people. it's a very different approach. when the president was running as a candidate four years ago he looked at the deficits under president bush and found them to be excessive and un-american. and they're about half as large as the ones he's put in place over the last four years. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. he's doubled it. there's no question if he were to be re-elected we would see trillion dollar deficits aga
the american people would just look and see what happened with the the previous republican administration and look at all the things that the present republican nominee supported during the bush administration and get an idea of the things he will implement if he wins. now, president obama is trying to fix what the previous administration did. it does not happen overnight. in the process at, people want things right now, they want everything fixed immediately. that to the vice- presidential debate. caller: >> the vice-presidential debate definitely matters. i don't think vice-president biden should let them get away with anything. i am an independent. i have voted republican and i have voted democrat, but i don't think he should let them get away with anything, because the slightest thing he lets them get away with, the people with weak minds will vote that way. host: you brought up the past eight years. paul ryan at a recent campaign stop in new hampshire was talking about the threat of deficit spending. it's probably something you might hear tonight at the vice- presidential debate. her
. my record shows that on controversial issues. i would be the point person for our administration. when asked if i wanted a portfolio, my response was no. barack obama indicated he wanted me to be with him to help him governmen. i will give my bested by spirit one of the things he said early on -- i will give my best. i look forward to working with barack and playing a very constructive role in his presidency, creating the type of change this country needs. >> there was a lot of concern four years ago that he did not seem to be arrogant toward sarah palin or not patronizing toward her, that would be a better word. and there are no such concerns tonight. he's going to be more aggressive against paul ryan than he was against sarah palin. and of course he won't be -- there's the question that he was answering then, you know, kind of what kind of vice president he would be. his answer on a question like that would be different tonight because of course he's been vice president for four years and we know there are areas in which he's played an extremely significant role including, for
